    I am selling my Acoustic Energy Radiance 1 5.0 speakers.

    The speaker package consists of 4 x Radiance 1 bookshelf speakers and 1 x Radiance Centre speaker. All speakers come with their original boxes and cloth magnetic grilles.

    The speakers are in good condition with a small amount of minor cosmetic damage. One speaker has a small piece of veneer that needs to be glued on but I have not got around to it. The bookshelf speakers have been wall mounted so have brackets attached to the back but these will be included.

    I will also chuck in various lengths of speaker cable if needed as I am not currently replacing the system.

    Pickup is preferred but I have the original boxes for everything so would be able to post if needed but a quick quote on Royal Mail suggests this would cost over £100 due to size and weight. This is not included in the price.

    The system is still being used so am happy to demo if you are in the area (between Preston and Manchester)

    Looks like they've come down in price since I paid £500 for it last year. I'd take £250 for it. It's pretty much mint condition and I have the box, manuals, setup mic etc.

    Hello,

    would you consider posting the receiver to Portugal?

    I'm looking for an Atmos receiver to upgrade from my Sony 1030.


    Regards.

    Hi Alecto28, I've done a quick quote on the DHL website and it came out at over £150 to post to Portugal! I'm pretty sure you could just buy a receiver cheaper over there instead.

    Hi, can I ask how are the brackets fixed to the speakers, are there purpose made fixings on the back? Thanks

    Hi Roo124,

    The brackets have been screwed into the back of the speakers. It's not the way I would have done it but they were already like that when I bought them.

    Having said that, it makes no difference to the sound quality and you can't see anything from the front or side of the speakers.

    I'm at work at the moment but I can take some more photos later on if you like?

    Thanks

    Ouch...

    That's really high...
    I thought it would be roughly the same as when I bought the Sony through Ebay, it came from the UK for about 30£ delivery.

    Cheers!

    Yeah I thought it was a bit high! I'll get a few more quotes tonight to see if I can find anything more reasonable.

    I've tried a few more companies and it looks like I could get the postage down to about £35 to £50 with UPS. What do you think?

    Hello again,

    I have a max budget of 300€ which is ~270£,
    But I can go to 285£ with postage.
    Does that work for you?

    That sounds ok to me but I'll measure the box and get an exact price on the postage first if that's ok? I'll let you know later on tonight when back home.

    Hi,
    Shame they've been screwed into, might still be interested though. If you get a chance over the weekend could you put on some photos of the speaker backs? Thanks a lot

    Hi, I've attached a couple of photos of the backs of the speakers. The first one is of a front speaker which don't currently have the brackets attached (but they will be included in the sale) and the second is of a rear speaker which is currently wall mounted so the bracket is still attached. The centre doesn't have any bracket holes because it would be too big to wall mount anyway.

    Front Speaker.jpg Rear Speaker.jpg

    Apart from the brackets, and the small piece of damage I mentioned in the original post, the speakers are in decent condition.

    I'm open to offers so let me know if you're still interested.

    The amp has been sold now so it's just the speakers for sale. I'm looking for about £650 but I'm open to offers.

    I've updated the Original post now that the Amp has been sold. Price dropped to £600 for the speakers as I've noticed a couple of slight dings now I've taken them off the wall. The speakers are now all unplugged and ready to go so I've attached some more photos below.
